Hiroshima Aside

After leaving the Hiroshima Peace Museum complex, it occurred to me that I had visited another great WWII memorial, many years ago. When I was ten, I took a trip with my grandparents to Hawaii, and we went to the Pearl Harbor memorial, and visited all the preserved shipwrecks, took the tours, etc.. Now, it's been 25 years, and like I said, I was ten, but I don't recall any of those memorials being dedicated to the idea of Peace. Maybe that has to do with the fact that the casualties in Pearl Harbor were mostly military, and that we weren't at war at the time.
